How OpTIC Technology Centre’s Innovative Community Can Help Support Business Start-Ups.

If you’ve just started out in business or you’re thinking of taking your first steps, the first questions you need to answer are, where will your business be based? What facilities do you need to launch and run your business and what support is available to you? This is where the innovative community environment at the OpTIC Technology Centre in St. Asaph can help.

Under one roof you have access to a wide variety of modern, spacious office facilities, extensive fully equipped lab spaces of up to 150 sqm, which can be tailored to meet your requirements and a support network you can trust, when you’re at the beginning of your business journey.

Alongside the business support available to you at the OpTIC Centre, you will also have access to technical support, links to academic activities and all the right facilities you need as a business to grow, without having to pay large fees or invest in capital, for something you can’t afford at this moment in time.

As we know money and time are two of the most important factors in business, which is why we have flexible lease agreements to suit your needs, from monthly to medium term leases. This allows you to decide what is best for you at this moment in time, whilst also looking ahead for the next stage in business you are working towards.

We also make things simple and hassle free by offering fully inclusive rent costs, so there are no hidden charges or nasty surprises either. With one bill covering the space you require, it allows you to concentrate on the most important parts, you and your business.

At OpTIC we have the flexibility to support you from starting your business at the centre with one desk, to larger office space when you employ enough staff to fill your own business unit. You can also increase the laboratory space you require, helping you to expand your product/service provision. No matter which stage you are at, we are there to support you every step of the way.

The OpTIC Technology Centre is located just off the A55 (Junction 26) and is approx. one hour from Manchester and Liverpool International Airports, which means our location is easy for you to commute to, but also for your customers/clients to find you too and we have free parking on site.

You will also receive the added benefits of a fully serviced reception, on-site café, goods in/out area, discounted meeting and conference facilities, access to funding, networking and seminars too. Imagine having your business based at the OpTIC Technology Centre whilst also having the space to host your grand launch event here too!
